Music, Lyrical Storytelling and Songwriting

Do you have a story to tell? Come and learn the art of songwriting and find your voice. 

Jungaji is a First Nations songman, visual artist, playwright, and activist who has been renowned in the Australian music industry for three decades. First appearing on the scene as a teenager with Aim4More in the 90s, he has now embarked on a new creative path fusing Soul and R&B to create a unique and authentic sound that showcases his cultural roots.

Formerly known as Troy Brady, Jungaji has undergone a deep cultural transformation and found a profound understanding of his identity and is dedicated to sharing his authentic voice and artistic testimony with the world. One of only a small group of fluent Gugu Yalanji speakers left today, maintaining his ancient songlines & stories is of utmost importance in terms of coexistence between two sovereignties.  

A proud Western Gugu Yalanji & Birri Gubba man, Jungaji (pronounced Jun-gah-jee) is continuing ancient law by documenting the stories of his people through art, theatre, music, and storytelling having learned these traditions from his elders, and particularly from his last ancient connection to a 106-year-old bush man with whom Jungaji had a life-changing spiritual initiation, and he is passionate about preserving these traditions for future generations. He has forged a reputation based on integrity and has been delving deep into the language and culture of his ancestral lands, talking to elders, and creating art both visually and aurally.

Come and join Jungaji and find your voice, and tell your story.
